Re: Let's play Fortnite?

I get home late on Monday and Tuesday nights.. so I probably wouldn't be free until about 11 pm (Eastern time). I'm fine with playing at that time for an hour or two, if you guys are up for it. But if you guys are looking for something earlier in the evening, then Wed, Thurs, Sat, and Sunday are my ...

Re: 2018/4/7: Nintendo Switch: Axiom Verge

As for the grade, I struggled with the Switch Joycon controls all the way thru, which kept the score to an A. When I tried with the pro controller (and a real directional pad) it was better, but how many people with a Switch own the $60 pro controller? On the PS4/Xbox One you're going to have a fun...

Re: Tactics Vs War of the Lions?

Here's a good comparative review, which even puts one scene side-by-side so that you can see the difference of the translation. Since the translation is the biggest difference, watching that scene should help you decide whether you care about going for the PSP version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Tactics Vs War of the Lions?

First of all, great choice! Final Fantasy Tactics is somewhere in my personal Top 3 games, and on any given day I might tell you that it's my all time favorite game. After loving FF7, I was basically willing to play any game with the Final Fantasy name on it. I played FFT on a whim in the late 90s, ...

Re: Nintendo Ruined Video Games

Well there's a hot take, sure to stir up controversy. I only read page 1 of this 4 page article, but I presume that that's where the interesting part is anyway (I think the other 3 pages are all about the Wii U). While the author is vastly overgeneralizing -- and I really do not think video games we...

Re: 2018/4/7: Nintendo Switch: Axiom Verge

Nice. I have the Multiverse version on PS4 and really looking forward to playing it now. I beat Super Metroid a few years ago, but never loved it. But one of my favorite games is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Do you think this game would appeal to Castlevania fans too, or is it truly just a Me...

Re: Last Call: Wii Shop closing - What should we download?

Here's a Virtual Console list I made a while back to show what VC titles were exclusive. http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/wii_u_virtual_console/wii_u_virtual_console_games_missing_between_regions?start=580#reply-581 Thanks for sharing this. I found it really useful for trying to decide from VC ga...

Re: Axiom Verge (Switch)

Figures that after I order a Pro Controller I finish the game before it arrives! Looking forward to this review. While I already bought the game, I haven't had a chance to play it yet. It'll probably be awhile before I do, unless your review inspires me to bump it ahead of my current backlog. Even ...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

Thanks for the heads up on Trackmania. I downloaded it and played a few rounds. Seems decent enough so far. I haven't tried online yet, because you have to create a Ubisoft account, which is very annoying...

Re: Let's play Fortnite?

We should figure out a night to try it out. Wednesday or Thursday night of this week would work for me. My work hours are weird. I work from 3pm to midnight, and the mornings, usually 9am-2pm, is my free time. I have Sundays and Mondays off, though, so I can definitely get on those nights! A Sunday...
